Higgins seems to insinuate that if the money is right, that is the fight that will happen. However if the deal being offered doesn’t measure up to their expectation, they are likely to go a different route with Lucas Browne being mooted as a major candidate to become an alternative option. “Only if the money is right. We are in negotiations, if we feel it doesn’t respect us with the split then we will go in another direction,” Higgins stated.
Sizing up the possible alternative opponent, Parker’s promoter argued Browne is a legitimate threat in the heavyweight division.“Lucas Browne wouldn’t be a keep busy fight. I rate him in the top five punchers in the division. If the business is right we fight Joshua. I want us to get in front of Joshua before somebody else takes him out,” Barry added
